Hollywood Dirt – Is Julia Roberts to Blame for Her Estranged Half-sister’s Death?
ROCKY RELATIONSHIP WITH JULIA ROBERTS MAY BE TO BLAME FOR SISTER’S SUICIDE: There are reports now that JULIA ROBERT’S half sister Nancy Motes, who was found dead Sunday of an apparent drug overdose, left a suicide letter in which she blamed the rocky relationship with Julia for her troubles.
According to a source for “The New York Daily News,” Motes’ five-page letter contained three pages of “rantings that her sister drove her to do this.” Word is Julia had practically cut Nancy off because she suspected she had been selling stories to the tabloids. A friend of Nancy’s told London’s The Mail that Nancy grew depressed after Julia “rejected” her about six months ago.
Motes’ Twitter history clearly addressed the complicated relationship she had with Roberts. Montes blasted Julia in a series of tweets this past January. She wrote “America’s Sweetheart’ is a B—-!!’” in one, followed by another that read, “Do you want to be a fan of someone so cruel? She’s not even that good of an actress. Happy you totally F—ed with me?” The tweets were deleted on Tuesday. There’s been no word from Julia Roberts or her people on either the tweets or the alleged suicide letter.
IN DENIAL – EVA MENDES: EVA MENDES isn’t saying much about the state of her union with RYAN GOSLING, but she is talking about those pesky pregnancy rumors. Yesterday on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Eva said the gossip started after she requested a pat down at the airport instead of going through the scanners, which she called “creepy,” because they show you naked and emit radiation. When she refused, the web went crazy with speculation that she was with child.
As for Gosling ... Eva seemingly hinted at the split rumors. When asked what she’s doing for Valentine’s Day, Mendes replied, “I’m not a big Valentine’s Day person. I’ll probably just order a deep-dish and watch the ‘Notebook’ or something … Just cry, weep.” Talk of a break up started because the two have not been seen together since October. Gosling, however, was just seen driving Mendes’ SUV in Beverly HIlls on Sunday, so who knows. (PHOTO)

TAYLOR SWIFT ‘UNDATEABLE’?: Is TAYLOR SWIFT’S love life nonexistent because of her music? That’s the word on the street. “Life & Style” magazine has sources telling them Tay is “lonely and single”, and complaining to friends that she’s undateable — supposedly because guys are afraid to hook up with her.
One of the tab’s sources says, “Taylor’s tendency to write songs about every guy she’s dated is a massive turnoff that scares guys away.” Another claims Swift is so hard up for a man she went on a desperate man-hunt at Golden Globes after-parties last month. The fact that she hasn’t been connected to anyone since leads to me to believe that she didn’t have any luck.

JENNER ADDICTED TO PLASTIC SURGERY: BRUCE JENNER’S more feminine look has had tongues wagging for months that his goal is to become a woman, but sources close to Bruce insist he’s not transitioning. Instead they say Jenner is going through a midlife crisis, and is addicted to plastic surgery. One source tells TMZ Bruce keeps changing his look because of his “Michael Jackson obsession with plastic surgery.” Other signs of the 64-year-old’s midlife crisis include his recent move to Malibu, his long ponytail and his Harley Davidson motorcycle.
R.I.P: Comedy legend SID CAESAR died yesterday in Los Angeles. He was 91, so we probably don’t need to speculate on the cause of death. Caesar was one of the pioneers of television. His 90-minute variety series “Your Show of Shows” debuted in 1950, and is widely considered a precursor to “Saturday Night Live”. Those of you slightly younger may remember him for his role as Coach Calhoun in both of the “Grease” movies.
